“December 25th”, by Becki Adams.
The base of this layout is 3 strips of patterned paper mounted on white cardstock. The photo and embellishments spread across the strips of paper to bring everything together. There are so many adorable patterned papers in this collection I wanted to add as many as I could to this layout.

“Really”, by Wendy Antenucci.
I began this page by fussy cutting out some of the words on the Happy Hearts paper; presents and happiness, since they were both green and my son’s shirt was green, I decided to cut other green words from the page to support my excitement theme. I knew my title needed to be bold so I placed my element on black cardstock so they would pop. The page was a little bare on the right side, so I layered a few strips of color to go along with my green and pops of red. A few stars added in to add some Christmas twinkle and my page was complete.

“Christmas Cheer” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
My absolute favorite holiday to create cards for is Christmas! I am so loving this new Christmas Cheer collection! The bright, happy colors are perfect for spreading some holiday cheer! I selected two coordinating patterned papers for my background and stitched them together. The focal image is two layered Paper Pieces combined with some coordinating stickers! For embellishment, I added a Saltwater Feather and a Snowflake Button!

“Christmas Cheer” card, by Diana Fisher.
Santa and his little helper deer are the stars of the new Christmas Cheer collection from Bella Blvd. Their cute characters paired with classic green and red colors makes this collection a must-have for holiday cards and gift tags.

“Be Merry” card, by Ashley Marcu.
The stickers and die cut from Christmas Cheer are the center piece of this card. I clustered them all and added color with the Designer Tapes. You can never have enough color so I added several patterned papers to complement the reindeer and trees.
